    Does anybody know what happened to Stern's CBS show? I haven't been able to listen much in the morning in the past 6 months so if he mentioned it I never heard it. I'm assuming CBS just pulled the plug on it, but I was wondering if Stern talked about it or if anybody had any details.

    thanks

    Ryan

    Yup, the show was cancelled due to low ratings. Here's a brief article about it from the IMDb:

    He claimed that he didn't want to just re-hash the E! show but the facts seem to support it being pulled for low ratings. I miss it b/c I don't get the E! show here in Toronto and I personally enjoyed seeing the stippers. He went into a huge rant one day about how much of a snake Les Moonves is but didn't say explicitly that it was because he cancelled his show. I hope, against odds of course that it comes back.

    It wasn't cancelled due to low ratings. Howard didn't want to do a coles notes of the E! show on Saturday night anymore so he had a meeting with Les and Howard offered him Kane and Les took it and issued the cancellation on the saturday night show which pissed Howard off.

    Kane will debut at the beginning of next season.

    Ryan,
    You can listen to Howard 24/7 here
    It was also Howard's idea for the Ozzy show but didn't pursue it, so MTV ran with it. Ozzy and Sharon came on his show to thank him.

    Thanks for the info.

    What are the details on this Kane show? I only get to listen on my 5 min drive to work, so I've heard him mention it but never got any details.

    Gary, I went to that link and click to listen and just got this 10 sec loop. I'll try another time I guess.

    I believe it'll be 3D animation like what was used on the saturday night show.

    Ron Zimmerman will be writing most (if not all) the scripts.

    I think it's about a family in southern US.
